Once planning permission is granted, we will be pushing even further to gather the funding we need for the cafe and community space. We have already been given many donations by the public which has been stewarded into getting us to this point so far. As a part of these bids , we would love to start gathering stories of how Park Life has helped you or been a positive influence in the community in order to add them to our grant bids. However, big or small if you have benefited from Park Life’s existence please let us know!
